One Year Anniversary

Today is day 365 of my new blog. That's right, one full year of blogging is now under my belt. It's been very interesting and I have learned a lot.

In that year, I have had nearly 7,000 visitors (pageviews as Google calls them). Not huge numbers, but still impressive for a non-commercial blog. In the beginning I would get maybe 4-5 visitors a day (thanks, Judy!). I think I clocked around 50 visitors my first month. But traffic has definitely picked up...I had 1,182 visitors in September.

The vast majority of visitors, 88%, are from the United States. The rest are from, in descending order, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Russia, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore, Philipines and Colombia. A full 53% of the users are using an Apple operating system (Mac, iPhone or iPad) while 39% are still in the dark (Windows). Google search is responsible for over 50% of my traffic while Facebook delivers 6%. I also get a decent amount of referrals from both and .

Here are the most popular recipes (in descending order):

  1. Alaskan King Crab Legs:
  2. Oven Roasted Baby Back Ribs:
  3. Grilled Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions:
  4. Grilled Chicken Breasts with Roasted Garlic Butter Mushrooms:
  5. Grilled Thai New York Strip Steaks with Lime Sauce:
  6. Wild Boar Ribs:
  7. The Loon Cafe's Pecos River Red Chili:
  8. Rocket Arugula:
  9. Grilled Lobster Tail:
  10. Pan Seared Filet Mignon:

Thank you for visiting. I'm glad you came!
